yes, though gpg4win-1.0.1 is from 26th of April
and WinPT 0.12.0 was released on the 10th of May.
So both releases are quite fresh
and usually there is some quality control happen before
a new version is released.

There is no fixed policy yet, 
it depends a lot on the time of the current developers.
One goal of gpg4win though is, to make it easy to build new installers
and to attract more volunteers.

We created the installer and all the instruction to you actually can do this.
It would be great to see the Build Installer Package used by more people!
If you find bugs, of course we would like to know.

When building a full installer with new versions, 
you could put it online and announce this as a test version 
on the development list. This would enable people to test a new
version and find bugs 
which would help speeding up the official gpg4win release.

Thanks for the compliment and your interest!
